That would be Pittsburgh's toughest opponent because the Flyers are a better model of what the Penguins are. Crap defense and goaltending covered up by explosive offense. The Pens have the two best players in the world but the Flyers core also has a world talent in Giroux and better depth IMO, especially with Pittsburgh trading Staal. Flyers also lost Jagr, but Pittsburgh losing Staal was a bigger deal.
I think the Rangers' depth will beat the Pens. I think the toughest opponent for the Rangers will be Boston. Other than that, I don't see a team in the East challenging them, at least on paper.
